If you live near Ballarat, the walks near the Lal Lal and Moorabool Falls are worth doing. While the peak time is when there is water pounding over the falls there is still pretty of scenic views at any time of the year. Yesterday we didn’t quite get to walk to the less visited Moorabool Falls, but it was still great to get outside and look at the views.
The walk starts from the carpark on Harris Road Lal Lal. Look out for the elusive wallaby. While it might be tempting to stray off the mown path there is a lot of blackberry along the West Branch of the Moorabool below the Moorabool Falls.
This is a reminder for the second Annual General Meeting of the Friends of the Forgotten Woodlands Inc. to be held Wednesday 8 August in Hamilton; venue to be determined closer to the time. Membership renewals were due in June if you want to be a financial member. Subscription form_201819
Here is a link to a website that shows all the Victorian volcanic plain volcanoes.
Back in 2014 there was a grassland installation at the State Library of Victoria and it featured in the Melbourne International Arts Festival that year. Now the project has spread its ‘seeds’ to 16th International Architecture Exhibition at the Venice Biennale. link
